“Let me start by expressing our appreciation to the current administration for their relentless support and continuous funding of the armed forces in the conduct of its operations.
“This has no doubt impacted positively on the capacity of our armed forces and troops in fighting the Boko Haram terrorists in the North East and other security threats across the country.
The minister told Osinbajo that the ongoing operation in the North East has recorded tremendous success and has led to restoration of normalcy in most parts of the affected areas.
He said efforts were ongoing to ensure that civil authorities take lead role as quickly as possible in the affected areas.
He said, “Our troops in conjunction with the vigilante groups successfully conducted clearance operations in villages and Boko Haram camps which led to the recovery of weapons and communication equipment as well as apprehension of many suspects.
“This is being supported by continuous aerial surveillance by the Nigerian Air Force so as to ensure that terrorists do not regroup.
